This will piss you off, but I actually met Ashe at the 81 USopen. He was just standing there, and I waltzed right up and introduced myself. Absolute great guy. Stood there and talked to me for about 30 minutes and acted like I was his best friend, and he didn't know me from Adam.
My fav Ashe match was the 75 Wimby final. It was like Ali-Fraizer, and NO body gave Authur a chance. You know the rest, it was awesome. And as you saw on my list, both of these guys were among my favs, but I really wanted Authur to pull it off.
Wow, you were lucky! It's always nice when celebs take the time to chat with you!
I had a simliar experience with James May from Top Gear!
